Hawkesbury Jacaranda Trail

Warm, spring days and cool nights bring out a magnificent colour explosion in the Hawkesbury. November is jacaranda time and these beautiful trees are in full bloom – and there is no better time to get outdoors to enjoy them or take that perfect Instagram shot.

Many people think the jacaranda tree is native to Australia but they were originally from Brazil. They usually flower for about four weeks starting mid to late October but warm winters can mean an earlier peak.

The Hawkesbury Visitor Information Centre gets a regular stream of enquiries from jacaranda ‘spotters’ about the best places to see these trees in bloom.

To help people find some of the best on display the Hawkesbury Visitor Information Centre team has pulled together a list of favourite locations.  One spot that is extremely popular is Governor Phillip Park in Windsor. Take a stroll along the river pathway for a purple, floral treat.

Locations on the trail can be found by picking up a free factsheet and map available from the Visitor Information Centre at 328 Hawkesbury Valley Way, Richmond or online at www.discoverthehawkesbury.com.au
